In a restaurant scene long on female talent, it may be considered passé to ask the question, "Where are all the female chefs?" But when women still make up only a little over 6 percent of the executive chef workforce in the United States, sometimes visuals help. This weekend (and continuing today, April 20), around 400 industry professionals flooded the Millennium Broadway hotel for the Women Chefs & Restaurateurs Conference, which kicked off with a keynote address from Lidia Bastianich on pushing forward with authenticity and a panel on "Taking a Bigger Bite Out of Your Career". After the serious insight was scribbled down and Tweeted out, the lights dimmed, a disco ball started to spin, and a Studio 54-themed party began.

At the Brisket Sessions, conversation compares with slowly cooked brisket.
Pop by Hill Country Barbecue Market in Brooklyn (345 Adams Street, Brooklyn; 718-885-4608) tonight, April 13, 2015, and you can have a drink with New York Times Magazine editor Jake Silverstein. Well, sort of — if you reserve a $5 spot ahead of time, you'll get a beer or margarita, which you can sip while you listen to Silverstein detail his rise through Texas Monthly, where he hired the country's first barbecue editor, and his move to New York City. The informal chat, moderated by LinkedIn executive editor Dan Roth, is part of an occasional Hill Country series known as Brisket Sessions.
